    Canadian nickel 1.76mm x 3 = 5.28mm
    American nickel 1.95mm x 3 = 5.85mm
    American quarter 1.75mm x 3 = 5.25mm

    oops. It was a typo, now corrected, not bad math. American nickel 1.95mm x 3 = 5.85mm

    I use the back end of drill bits for this job. Adjust to just fit a 5.5 mm, verify with 5.0 (loose fit) and 6.0 (no go).

    I'm sure there are matching murrican non metric bits that would fit the same purpose.

    5mm hex key with ski flattened on bench works. I recall reading somewhere that Dynafit's spec is +/- 0.5mm

    All good with drill bit! Thank you.

    I am working in metrics anyway so I have no clue what you are talking about

    And went for drilling 4mm instead of the official 4.1mm. Did run the screws in and out once to reduce forces before mounting. Seems to work for movement logic-X at least.

    Touring binders finally showed up from Europe! Brakes on ATK are tiny and flimsy, so I took them off. Weight is around 280g with screws without brakes. Total weight for ski/binder combo is 1825g for the Camox Freebird 183. I didn't set out to own a full quiver of Black Crows, thanks STP closeouts!

    Don't do that. The one and only spinner I ever had was after I had too many beers mounting a sth2 heel backward and had to reverse it (i.e. effectively running the screws in and out and in again). But I suppose my sample size of (1) screw is a bit small for a scientific conclusion.

    After skiing these in 2 ft of maritime mank yesterday I decided that I made a mistake mounting these forward.
    Certain ppl told not to, and other ppl told me I should. Glad that's over.
    4$ pack of skewers ftw with the shit I use to seam granite countertops with. Catalyzes in about 10 minutes, could pick the ski up on a single skewer after about 5 Mins.
    This is my cast set up and I let the shop mount it the first time... Fuck me I kind of butchered the first toe... Second guessed my template and ended up with a crooked screw or two on the first ski. Blah blah blah it works but not as smoothly as I'd like. I plan on doing some fine tuning with a round file so that I don't have to cuss as much on transitions...
    Looking forward to seeing how much better on the Line skis vs hanging ten

    How far forward did you mount them?

    Does anyone know where I can buy ski drill bits in Denver? Iím liking to do a quick mounting job and want to get my hands on bits ASAP instead of waiting around for mail.

    Let me know! Thanks.

    It was supposed to be +2 but that was the shop, I ended up moving back almost an inch so IRL shop 2cm is closer to 2.5 or 3...
    Too far forward for my fat ass on a powder ski... Another reason to mount your own fucking skis

    The wild snow recommendations for mounting pin-binders screws around a lot more
    They felt super tight anyways through the carbon layer. I think I am good but I will report back if I rip those things out.

    Mounted a pair of Attack 14 ATs on Liberty V92s yesterday. Easy as pie. I love that Tyrolia uses the same hole pattern on every binding I've ever used. SkiEssentials review said there were metal mounting plates under the heel/toe of the ski but I didn't see any metal shavings like I usually do when mounting skis with metal. Glad I went with the smaller bit first.

    Can't get binding to sit flush on ski

    For the life of me I can't get my binding to sit flush on the ski. Trimmed the small volcano with a chisel. Sits flat until I get a couple of turns in then it lifts up just a touch. Can't keep it flush with finger strength, should I clamp it? Still seems like an indication something is up.

    Advice?

    Did you tap it? Metal construction or metal mounting plate.

    Did not tap it. They are old Rosignol T3 Tele skis. Couldn't find much info. Looked like some metal when I drilled them.

    Mounting speed turns and it's just one heel piece that's a problem. Am I reading that maybe the threading on the heel piece is contributing?

    Standard Nato round - surely you have a box of those stashed somewhere?

    Advice: don't worry too much (at least if the gap is sub .5mm or so). Make sure to seal all screws properly.
